Romans 12:2 (NIV)
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
God has a plan for the life of every Christian. Every circumstance, every turn of destiny, is for your good. It is working together for completeness. His plan for you is being perfected. All things working together for your good and for His glory. As a young Christian, a friend of mine from college, wanted to be a missionary, like his father and mother. But God had other plans for his life. Changing circumstances revealed God’s will to him, and he was happy where God had placed him. So many of us ask God to change the circumstances to suit our desires, instead of us conforming our wills to His. Don’t let circumstances distress you. Rather, look for the will of God for your life to be revealed in and through those circumstances.
Dear Lord, we often want to run ahead of Your leading. Let us trust You completely and realize that in the middle of all the events of this day and our life, You are working out Your will for our life’s. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
